Warning, this is a heavily laden quilt fest photography session.
I think that I tried to capture aspects of the quilt through the vision of other items, so that your eye might be drawn to the quilt as a secondary detail. Really it has just become a backdrop so that you can focus on the lovely aspects of my garden (including my rotting old fence, which features once again. May I say that I am becoming attached to my rotting fence as it has become a desirous object to be photographed and offers interesting perspective when looking at it through the eye of the lens). The pomegranates are beautiful still- they have been dangling from those branches for months and I am surprised the possums haven't knocked them off.
I completed the quilting over a two day period and found that walking after sitting for such long periods of time at the machine was near impossible - My back was killing me. It is the first quilt that I have completed with free motion quilting and overall I love the effect (But my quilting has a lot to be desired.) As with all things it takes regular practise to become good
Anyway enjoy the photography and I am happy to have finished the quilt and send it off to the new mum Katie whom I hear has a beautiful little son
You've survived to the end! Well done :)
I have lots of photos from the Royal Show to show you tomorrow (or whenever I collate them) so please drop back again soon! Cheers and stay well.
